Detroit Tiger Links wishes it didn't have a real job

Adulting is difficult. Abbreviated links due to real life getting in the way. Don't get a job kids, it's not worth it. The Tigers have won 13 of their last 16 home games. On to the links. Talking Tigers Anibal Sanchez will return to the rotation Saturday, and he has looked good in relief. Is Michael Fulmer the next Justin Verlander? Uh.. yes please. Three Michael Pelfrey trade ideas if you would like to reside in fantasy land for a bit. James McCann signs a deal with Detroit start up Lawrence Hunt dress shirts. Buy local! More White Sox sadness I've never seen more negative articles...

Bruce Rondon off to solid start in return to Tigers but more of same needed for late-inning trust

Bruce Rondon off to solid start in return to Tigers but more of same needed for late-inning trust

Rondon has yet to allow a run in three innings during two appearances. DETROIT - Two strong outings aren't nearly enough to restore the Detroit Tigers' faith in Bruce Rondon. But it's a start. Rondon, who is trying to rebuild his career after being sent home last season for his "effort level," picked up his first win in almost a year when the Tigers beat the Seattle Mariners 4-2 at Comerica Park. He walked one while facing three batters in the eighth inning after relieving Justin Verlander with the score tied 2-2.   Rondon got the win - his first since June 26...

Tigers 4, Mariners 2: The offense didn’t quit on Justin Verlander

The bullpen was largely dominant, too. DETROIT — A group offensive effort backed Justin Verlander’s dominant start on Tuesday. With a two-run eighth for insurance and a dependable bullpen, the Detroit Tigers won 4-2 over the Seattle Mariners on the inaugural Bark at the Park Night. Verlander gave up just three hits and a walk in the first five innings of the game, allowing no more than one baserunner in any frame. His command was sharp and he had a deadly curveball. The only mistake he made was on a high 96 mph fastball that Kyle Seager bombed out to right for a two-run home run. The...

Bless You Boys rates Very Good Baseball Dogs from Bark at the Park Night

This event was a barking success. DETROIT — The Detroit Tigers’ inaugural Bark at the Park Night was every bit as fantastic as it sounds. Dogs and baseball are pretty much a perfect match. Bless You Boys wandered over to the section reserved for Man’s Best Friend, and as far as the pet owners are concerned, it was a huge success. Rather than bore you with words about how awesome these dogs are, we graded them using the Very Good Dog scale. Enjoy! Huge, fluffy, and sits on command. 10/10 Very Good Dog His paws were as big as human hands, with drool to match. Does...

Game 71 Preview: Seattle Mariners at Detroit Tigers

Justin Verlander will face off against lefty James Paxton, who has been dominant in four starts this season. We have continuously marveled at Justin Verlander's evolution as a pitcher throughout his career, but his recent adjustments are worth revisiting. Through his first six starts, he had a 6.49 ERA with 33 strikeouts and 13 walks in 34 2/3 innings. Since then, Verlander is 5-2 with a 2.31 ERA and 5.33 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 58 1/3 innings. He has worked seven innings in all but one of those outings (and he finished just one out shy in that start). While it may not be the reason...

Which is real: Yankees’ scorching streak or this speed bump?

Was it a two-game stretch of good pitching smothering a hot lineup? Or the beginning of another team-wide Yankees hitting slump? Having won five straight entering Saturday’s game against Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander, the Yankees’ bats were in the best groove of the season. Verlander put the brakes on that and more of the same...
